When it comes to perpetuating the jazz tradition, no Atlanta radio station even remotely compares with WCLK 91.9 FM
, the voice of Clark Atlanta University. WCLK mixes in some blues, soul and Latin as well, but jazz is the thang
. The station features local voices (the late-night "Jazz After Hours" show will take you home) and several fine NPR programs, including "Jazz from Lincoln Center," Nancy Wilson's "Jazz Profiles," "JazzSet with Dee Dee Bridgewater" and the irrepressible Marian McPartland's "Piano Jazz."
